Checking cost of living sites: To have the same life style in 'The City'
as 50,000 in Minneapolis you would need from 77-90,000. That is the
range I got from three different cost of living sites. What is driving
this is the high cost for housing. In Mineapolis you can get a nice two
bedroom apartment for 675-900/month, a 2000 sq. foot house for 150,000.
My impression has been that most non-contracting jobs do not pay this in
the San Francisco Bay area.
